Marie-Bénédicte Dembour is a Professor of Law and Anthropology at the University of Brighton’s Business School.
She was born and grew up in Belgium where she first studied law before moving to England to study Social Anthropology at the University of Oxford.
Marie has long been concerned with studying and advocating for migrants’ rights, an interest that has been inspired, in part, by the many migrant friends she has met throughout her life.
Having studied the issue of migrants’ rights extensively for many years, Marie has put her findings into a new book called When Humans Become Migrants.
This will be published in February 2015 and is the inspiration behind her new blog. You can find out more about Marie-Bénédicte Dembour by viewing her staff profile on the University of Brighton website.
A message from Marie
As a passionate advocate for migrant’s human rights, I hope this blog will be of interest to anyone who wants to develop a deeper understanding of the different approaches to migrants’ human rights especially in Europe but also in Latin America.
